Cobo Hall Concert July 12, 1973

I was on my way home for my 10 year class reunion in Bay City, on cruthces from a sprained knee, and when my sister picked me up from the airport she told me that Led Zeppelin was playing the following night at Cobo Hall. I called a couple friends in Ann Arbor who picked my up the following night, and we were off on our 40 mile trip to Detroit. The place was packed, and people were walking around in front of the arena on their way in, and the marquee in front read the concert was "sold out". That didn't stop us from trying to get in though. My friends droped me off in front because of my crutches, and said they would pick me up where I was dropped off after the show. I hobbled around looking for a way to get in when I say a door to the arena open and an employee letting people in for $5. I hurried as fast as I could to the door, gave him my money, and in I went. After I got in I looked around to see if I could find a way to get a seat somewhere when I heard a voice say; "Hey!." When I turned around I saw a security guard walking toward me, (I thought I was busted and was about to be escourted out of the arena), when he asked me if I was "LOOKING FOR HANDICAPPED SEATING???" I said "YES!". He motioned for me to follow him which I did, and he directed me down one of the stairway where I was shown a seat right next to the stage just as Zep was coming out for their performance. This was the best Led Zeppelin concert I saw except for the 4 hour show at the Forum in"74. Zep was 45 minutes late that night, and their fourth encore was "Rock and Roll". WOW! What a night.
